Free Events Preview Utah Ski Season

Utah ski resorts usually begin to open around Thanksgiving. This year we are getting cool temperatures and lots of early mountain snow. Who knows, you may be able to ski at some of the resorts in early November. Here are some of the events being scheduled in anticipation of the season.

Free Tram Rides at Snowbird

Snowbird will offer free tram rides in exchange for a can of food donated to the Utah Food Bank during its Customer Appreciation Days, Oct 14-15 and Oct 21-22.

“One can of food equals one free Tram ride during Customer Appreciation Days. In lieu of food, a donation may be made for a Tram ride. All food donations benefit the Utah Food Bank and monetary donations benefit the Wasatch Adaptive Sports program.”

Snowbird’s ZipRider, Alpine Slide and Bungy Trampoline will also be open, but are not offered as part of the food exchange deal.

Ski Utah has the press release.

Rockin the Powder Party

Ski Utah will host a free “Rockin’ the Powder” season kickoff party on Nov. 11 from 4 to 10 p.m. at the Gallivan Center in downtown Salt Lake City.

“Rockin’ the Powder is geared for powder hounds of all ages and will feature live music by 80s cover band, the Metal Gods and music spun by DJ Knucklz. Other offerings will include the Ski Utah Photo of the Year contest, ski and snowboard videos, gear demos, beer garden, food vendors, giveaways from all Utah resorts, local celebrity pro athlete poster signings, best ’80s ski outfit contest, and more.”

First Tracks online ski magazine has this report.
